Venezuelan security forces fire tear gas at anti-Maduro protesters

In the third day of opposition rallies in the past week, several thousand protesters descended on downtown Caracas, witnesses said, for a march to the national election board.

But National Guard soldiers and police cordoned off the square where they planned to meet, so protesters instead milled in nearby streets waving flags, chanting “the government will fall” and pressing up against lines.

Not much to comment on but sooner or later it’s going to explode. There are more updates coming in on escalation.
